Did you ever consider the peaceful yet adventurous lifestyle you could lead by living in an RV? It is such a tempting thought, yet for some, it may seem daunting. The very idea of having no real roots can be overwhelming – but it does not have to be like that any longer. Look at all of the people leading this lifestyle right now. They are succeeding – and you can too, by following some advice designed to make an RV a home and life on the road a stress free adventure.
This is a big undertaking, though, so it pays to consider both the pros and the cons. You might come to the realization that while extended RV trips are nice, you would rather remain in your own home. Remember, houses do have some advantages over campers and RVs. But you always have to remember that you will always be able to go back to your house. It will always be there for you.
Whenever you live in an RV, there is absolutely no backyard that you have to keep up. That alone is one thing that is incredible, as most people hate yard work so that might be a pro for you. No more gutters, driveways to clean out or you will not even have any neighbors. Those can go be pros or cons, no matter which way you look at it.
The opinions of other people who have lived in campers and RVs can be helpful as well. This may be opinion, but many people who have tried living in a camper all of the time have had very positive experiences. Remember, on the road, you make all your own deadlines or enormous responsibilities. It is not hard to believe that you will feel healthier, both mentally and physically. Plus, RVs are no longer cramped, simple affairs. You can get all the comforts of home in many of them.
You do not have to worry about being unavailable. You no longer have to be cut off from the people you love. You can get it in contact with them literally everywhere, and in a number of different ways. You do not have to wait for payphones and things like that. Wireless internet is a life saver there, as are cell phones.
Banking is going to be an issue as well, you want to make sure that you go with a bank that is world-wide or at least nation-wide so you can find a branch easily. However, getting your bills and where you will get your medical attention should you get hurt are some things you should be thinking about.
Depending on your financial situation, you may have to support yourself while you are on the road. That is also where the internet can come in handy, because there are so many work from home opportunities. A lot of RV resorts also offer job opportunities, both part time and full time. Plus, you can usually live at that particular resort without paying rent.
Clearly, living in an RV is not what it used to be. Weigh the advantages and disadvantages. It can be a lot of fun, but it has to feel like the right lifestyle to you.
